1961 Pontiac Catalina Safari Our Christmas Card six years ago With a growing family, wanted to find a a good cruiser that would be a good fit for us. Searched for a Safari for a few years before finding this one. Original interior, glass, chrome, and motor and one repaint during its lifetime about 25 yrs ago. Instant hit to say the least. Day we brought it home Other than adding new carpet, retains original interior and carpet Safety upgrades immediately including disc brakes and belts. Dog dish caps modified to fit new 15" Wheelsmith wheels to give stock look while clearing the new brakes. About 7 years into ownership and have continued to enjoy and care for our Safari. Eventually went through the 389, added a 4 bbl and new cam, and upgraded to a TH400 to be able to reliably tow our '64 Aloha travel trailer. Love the way it puts smiles on people's faces anytime we take it out . . . but the biggest thing for me is how my daughter has called it her wagon for years now. Think it will always be a keeper.
